Next Kent meet A249 Northbound: Sun 29th March 1pm

Recommended Posts

 

 

When the battle changed and London became the target, bombers driven back from London would fly over Detling on the way out to dump any used ordnance there. I bet there are still a few 500kg bombs sitting under the Kent fields...Bombshite. Your unexploded Nazi ordnance is our concern

I don't know about Kent, but they still turn up about once a month in east Surrey so it makes sense.

 

They still turn up pretty often in the dredgers that supply aggregate from the Channel to Shoreham port too.

We get it around Thanet quite a lot.  Followed a bomb disposal vehicle with its flashing lights on that way a couple of weeks ago.

 

Knowing Thanet, I'm not sure why they keep disposing of them.  It should be on the town improvement plans to just let them go off...

At a Military festival at Damyns Hall aerodrome a few years back I got to have a go at defusing a German incendiary. Was pretty easy, only detonated it four times removing the fuse on a bench.

 

Kudos to the guys doing it for real at the bottom of a crater during a raid with a gas main nearby. One of those jobs where failure really isn’t an option

This is coming up soon now, looking forward to catching up before winter really descends. Sunday is looking chilly but dry for now.

 

As normal, I'm selling various varieties of shite on ebay - anything wants anything, give me a shout: https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/so-real. I'm already bringing something for Mr Vant.

 

Flat4Alfa and I haven't managed to meet yet so I can hand him a bass guitar he won in a roffle, if anyone is coming from his general direction (nearer Luton than me) and could take it at least in his direction, would be much appreciated.

 

Ta.

Oh, for anyone into their real ale, happy to bring along some local Herne Bay stuff if anyone is interested: http://www.goodyales.co.uk/shop.html

I'd be happy to take the item back to Thurrock, probably gets it half way closer to Fiat4Alfa and would save him from having to negotiate the crossing if that helps?

 

It can live in the boot of the car or the garage - or I can live out some Level 42 fantasies prior to collection!

Cheers Parky, I've exchanged PM's with Flat4, and he's happy with that, so I'll bring it with me. I'm sure he'll be fine if you do some posing with it ;-)

Despite MrsDS trying to destroy Sainsbury's trolley park with the Saab estate this week it is repaired already and I am looking forward to the meet.

Just need to know exactly where it is, presumably over the top of the hill past Scragged Oak Road but how much further on? Is it at Mickey's Rock Cafe?

Oh dear , got to the end of the road in the Pajero and the pads give a murmur ....got to Tunbridge Wells and braking creates a grinding noise.... :shock:

 

 

I'll not risk Detling hill.. so turned around came home   :-( .

 

That'll be new discs and pads then

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

      Yo! I've been nominated (many times) to organise a shitefest next year, considering i can't even organise my own life then this could be a challenge but I'm happy to try and arrange something if there enough interest?.
      I've made enquiries at the Rose pub where we hold our East Coast Retro car meets on in Shotley near Ipswich, Suffolk (IP9 1NL) and she's more than happy for us to use the field over weekend for £5 per person per night if sleeping over, there are toilet facilities and the pub does good grub plus they have a large room for us to have a meal or maybe a quiz on the Saturday night?.
      I've also spoken to a friend who's a volunteer at the Ipswich Transport Museum and even though the museum is closed to the public on a Saturday he can't see no reason why we can't have the museum to ourselves for a private tour around and even the possibility of a bus ride on one of their historic buses which I'm sure a few on here would really enjoy.
      Now it's obviously early days yet but what i need to know roughly is how many of you shitters be interested in this and i need to give the pub a date as their field is getting booked up so that we can secure for our chosen weekend.

      Anyone else going? UKSaabs is having a show there again this year, so do stop by and say hello.
      One of the advantages of having a stand is you get a code so your club members can get a discount on admission prices on the Saturday and Sunday. Not a huge amount of saving but anything is welcome. They insist that only members can get the discount code, but as you lot are all* members of UKSaabs if you want the code, drop me a PM and it will come back by return.
